Why Face-to-Face Interpreting is a Preferred Option

Holding an important meeting or business negotiations with your international partners or clients? Need to communicate critical information to your limited English proficient (LEP) patient or consumer? Studies show(1) that 55% of our messages are conveyed through non-verbal and non-vocal elements, such as facial expressions, gestures, and posture. It is no wonder that face-to-face interpreting (also referred to as in-person interpreting or onsite interpreting) is a preferred option as it provides a full context of the communication setting and participants.
